Magpies Ladies 6th Match report

Magpies Ladies 6th team versus Watton Ladies 3rd team.

It was a cloudy, dry morning when Magpies 6th played away at Watton. We scored a goal within minutes when the ball shot up the right wing to Julie Davy who aimed at the defenders goal where the ball was deflected, but quick thinking Krystal Jenkins pushed the ball home. Everyone was surprised and delighted. Watton had numerous short corners but our strong defenders thwarted their strikes at goal. Sadly, during one of these corners, skipper Karen Ray took a ball to the face but returned to play later.

During the second half, play seemed to be fairly even despite Watton having plentiful short corners and us having one. We had a couple of shots at the goal but they were deflected. One of our team went sliding across the pitch in an effort to deflect a shot at our goal. In fact, Watton seemed to be in our circle quite a lot but a stirling effort by our goalkeeper, Jess, kept the score at zero.

Score: 1 – 0
